We absolutely loved our stay at Round House! Nadia and Paul were super helpful and we loved how relaxed the vibe was. They are located right on the beach and at night you can hear the sound of the waves lapping at the shore - bliss!
We were lucky enough to have the roundhouse for most of our stay - we were booked into a bungalow for the second half our stay, but another guest left the roundhouse unexpectedly so we swooped before it could get snaffled up again! We loved spending lazy afternoons in the hammock on the deck, listening to the sunbirds in the hibiscus. If you're a light sleeper it's worth mentioning that the roundhouse can be a bit noisy as it's right by the road, but the noise dies down after about 10/11pm. It's open, airy, very spacious and so very charming! We thought it was hilarious that the dogs join in with the morning prayers - it all added to the charm of the place and we wouldn't have changed a thing.
We had no problems at all with safety, privacy etc and were happy to sleep with our doors and windows thrown wide open to let the sound of the beach in. If you're lucky the cat may come in to warm your feet in the middle of the night! She's off again before sunrise though (cupboard love!). There is a mosquito net but we never found the need to use it - there weren't many mozzies around and the few that were there were kept away by the fan :)
The bar is lovely and open, with its sand-covered floor and amazing view of the sea. We spent a few long relaxing mornings playing with the board games while trying to decide what to do with the rest of our day. The food is really good too! Nadia and Paul also provide drinking water for guests to refill their water bottles with - great for limiting the number of plastic water bottles thrown away.
All in all a wonderful, relaxing stay on an amazing beach in an amazing little part of Thailand. Would stay here again in a heartbeat!
